My husband just came upstairs in a panic (for him) and tells me there is a bat flying around the living room. Sure enough a bat, about a foot wide (with wings), is flying around in a little panic of his own. We have an old house where every room is...a separate room...not open concept at all, so we closed it off and watched through the french doors for a half a minute. Amazing! Really neat to see one up close, flying all around. So my husband went in and caught him in one of those mesh, collapsible hampers pretty quickly and we took him outside. We watched him climbing around in the hamper for another half a minute and then let him fly off. Sooooo cute!
But I'm sure he'll be back. We noticed last summer that we had 2 bats in the attic and we're not sure how they get in. My husband noticed one up there flying around over the weekend. Does anyone have experience with bats in the house or how to safely block them from getting in? Should we call a professional? I don't want them hurt but we could do without the thrill of sharing our house with them.
